Hull KR assistant coach praises performance in win over Bradford

Lincoln Withers

Receiving praise from a coach is a good feeling for any rugby league player and for the Hull KR players, that was what they received, with assistant Chris Chester praising the efforts of the players who fought valiantly to come away with the victory.

Trailing 12-4, it was a 21-minute blitz led by Lincoln Withers who scored a double, as the Rovers took out the game 28-18.

“We showed a lot of character,” said Chester.

“We’re really happy with the two points. It was an ugly win, one we wouldn’t have won six weeks ago.

With a loss in the local derby to Hull FC last week, Chester felt it was imperative that his side bounce back and give the fans something to cheer about.

“It was important for the fans to celebrate this win,” he said.

“We’ve played well the last few weeks and gained a lot of Valium 15mg confidence.

“We were disappointed with last week’s derby result. It’s nice to get a win in front of the home fans. Now we are in the top eight, we have to stay there.”

It was a different story for Bradford Bulls coach Francis Cummins, who knows that with tough sides coming up against some of the competition heavyweights, his side has to improve.

“This was a big game for us,” he said.

“We are going to have to do better in our games coming up. We were in some good positions and we threw it away.

“I’m sick of saying we showed good character. We seem to get ourselves in to good position score a good try and then give them a chance.

“I thought our goal-line defence was really good and probably the best we’ve been. We needed to be efficient with the ball and we weren’t.”
